Programs of study

The College of Science offers course work leading to the following degrees:

  • Master of Arts,
  • Master of Science, and
  • Doctor of Philosophy.

Doctoral programs in the college typically reflect the areas of academic specialization or focus of the various departments (see individual program descriptions in this catalog for specific information). All areas offer challenging programs that provide students with the opportunity to become experts in their chosen fields. A major emphasis in the college is to train graduate students in the fundamentals of research and to prepare them, especially on the doctoral level, to be critical thinkers who can advance human knowledge through research.

The college is composed of the following academic departments and programs.


Members of the COS conduct innovative research in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. Research initiatives within these fields include biochemistry and biotechnology, plant sciences, genetics, developmental integrative biology, bioinformatics, environmental toxicology, computational chemistry, organometallic chemistry, forensics, chemical catalysis, computational physics, semiconductor physics, laser and accelerator-based physics, materials characterization, statistics, theoretical mathematics, and applications of geographic information systems. Graduate student training integrates research with technical writing and communication skills.
